1: Emma Campbell 2010-2011
2: In February, we were slammed with a huge blizzard. Many people did not have power and travel was almost impossible. School was cancelled for a whole week. Uncle Stephen, Aunt Marti, and Gavin came to stay with us since they were not able to get back to the farmhouse. The kids played in the snow, took hot baths, and got on each others' nerves after a few days.
3: You, Emma and Gavin warmed up after playing in the snow. | FUN!!! | The weight of the snow brought a tree down on the roof of the house and put a hole right in it.
4: You enjoyed wearing the swim goggles at Peyton's 6th Birthday party at Howard T. Ennis. You loved swimming with daddy and playing with Gavin.
5: March 2010
6: Disney Trip Spring Break 2010
7: You had a fantastic time our first trip to Disney. You enjoyed meeting all of the characters and loved to hug all over them. You weren't scared at all! You were excited to meet Mickey and Minnie but you were completely thrilled to meet the Wicked Step-Mother and the Step-Sisters. They even took you to the back door of the castle to wake up Cinderella. Each night you enjoyed watching the castle change colors, from the window of our suite. You loved that castle and talked about it constantly.
8: May 2010 | I took these pictures of you girls for Mother's Day. Our beautiful Emma. How did you grow up so fast?

11: Reagan and Mackenzie's 3rd Birthday Party June 2010 | Playing | With | Play Doh
12: Frontier Town You went to Frontier Town for the second year in a row with Ms. Jodie's daycare. You enjoyed riding the horse and the swing. You and Katie loved holding hands and exploring things together. You had a blast in the crooked house and wanted to keep going back in. Your least favorite was the sound of the gun shots during the opening gun fight. It really scared you.
13: Frontier Town June 2010
14: Delaware State Fair July 2010 You went to the Fair to watch your sister show horses for the very first time. It was a very, hot and humid July afternoon. You were so sweaty that your hair was curling up in the cutest little curls around your face. You had a great time taking pictures of Peyton out in the arena. After sissy was finished, you both enjoyed riding the rides and getting your hand painted.
16: August 2010
17: You fell asleep on the couch before I could even take you up to bed for your nap. I couldn't resist taking this picture of your precious, innocent face.
18: August 2010
19: For your third birthday, you asked mommy to make you a Dora cake. I bought a pan and decorated the cake. You were so excited. You had family come celebrate with you at our house and got a lot of nice gifts.
20: Here are two of your favorites...napping and peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. You will ask for a pb and j sandwich every single day for lunch! Apparently, mommy got lunch ready a little late on this day. You barely got through a couple of bites before you fell asleep at the table. You just turned 3 and you still take a 3-4 hour nap each day!
21: September 2010
22: Peyton's first day of 1st grade. | You were just about as excited for sissy's first day of school as she was. It won't be long and you will be posing for your own first day of school picture!
23: September 7, 2010
24: Mommy found a black leotard that sissy had outgrown. It was just your size. While out shopping I came across these cute leopard ears, mask and tail. You made the cutest little cat ever!!!
25: Halloween October 2010
26: Christmas 2010 | You had a wonderful Christmas. You got many clothes and books. You were very much into the Princess Barbies after seeing the princesses in Disney. You also got a bookshelf to put all of your books on. You love Taylor Swift and got a CD so you can sing along with her. Mommom and Poppop got you both pillow pets which were quite a hit! Santa certainly found our house this year.
27: You and Peyton trying out your new pillow pets on mommy's new office rug. | A picture of all the grandkids: Blaine, Brent, Mackenzie, Peyton, Reagan and Emma.
28: December 2010 While we were on Christmas Break, you and your sister decided to dress up as cowgirls and sing some Jason Aldean. You love to listen to, and sing, all kinds of country music. You especially love Taylor Swift and Lady Antebellum.
30: January 2011 We took you both to the rodeo at the Wicomico Civic Center. You loved wearing your cowgirl clothes and hat. Your favorite part of the show was the silly rodeo clown!
32: As we were coming up the stairs to go to bed, you decided to sprint into your bedroom in total darkness. Unfortunately, you are the exact same height as the footboard of your bed that you ran into. I hadn't even gotten the words, "don't run, Emma" completely out of my mouth when I heard you scream. We iced your eye and it immediately turned black and blue. A couple of days later your entire eye was a rainbow of colors.
33: February 2011
34: Precious girl...you love to read. Every day at naptime you read books before you fall asleep. This day you fell asleep with the book still in your hands. I hope you always have a passion for reading as you do now!
35: March 2011
36: You went to Sunday School with Nana on Easter Sunday, but not before you checked out your baskets. Looks like the Easter bunny found our house. Mommom and Poppop gave you your beautiful matching Easter dresses. There was even a matching dress for Carly to wear.
37: Easter April 2011
38: Family Picture with your full Buckets! | Being silly on the steps.
39: We had our annual Easter Egg Hunt before we had family for dinner. You loved collecting eggs in your bucket. | Getting all the silliness out before we head to Philadelphia to fly out to Disney!
40: Who is ready to go to Disney?
41: This picture was taken at the hotel the night before we flew out to Disney. You were all so excited and so not ready to go to sleep! Easter Sunday 2011
42: We had another great year at Disney. You loved all of the characters and would give them the biggest hugs. You even got to see the wicked step mother and sisters again from last year. You had a great time dancing with the characters at Mickey's Backyard BBQ and watching daddy play Davy Crockett on stage at the Hoop Dee Doo Revue. You also rode your first roller coaster, Big Thunder Mountain. You just met the height limit so I let you ride with me. Aunt Marti rode in the car in front of us and since she was holding her hands up in the air, you did the same too. Mommy had all she could do to keep you from falling out of the car. I think the highlight for you was seeing the castle. You loved to watch it turn colors at night, see Tinker Bell fly by it and watch the fireworks explode around it!
43: Disney 2011
46: June 2011 You love to go eat at the Green Turtle in Rehoboth. I am not sure if it is all the tv's in the restaurant or the fact that you love to come down to the beach and splash in the water.
49: July 2011 You went with Peyton to her friend Harley's 7th birthday party. She had a pool party at her house. You LOVED the enormous inflatable water slide. You enjoyed sliding down it more than you liked swimming in the pool.
51: Horseback Riding July 2011 You love to jump on Shorty whenever we go to pick up sissy from riding lessons. On this day you quickly learned how to do, "whoa" and pull back on the reins. Poor Shorty didn't know whether he should walk or stop.
52: Michigan July 2011 | There is always plenty to do on the deck at the cottage. Many fun hours were spent having spa parties, eating popsicles, playing ipods, and hanging out.
53: Alexa showing Emma how to work the ipod touch. | The little girls getting a pedicure from Bethany.
54: Boat Riding in Michigan July 2011
55: Once we reached the big lake, poppop would put the sea legs down and we would all go swimming. You even jumped off the pier all by yourself. Such a brave 3 year old! | You loved to go out on the Pontoon boat to the big lake. Poppop would let you sit in his lap and drive the boat.
56: You loved swimming in the lake. You would swim from the pontoon boat to the shore and play for hours. You and daddy even showed mommy how you jumped off the pier. You weren't as brave the second time and wanted daddy to hold you as you jumped off together.
58: Michigan July 2011 | Bethany braiding Emma's hair. | Are we finished yet? | Emma's braids

62: August 2011 Zoo Trip You spent the day with some friends from Ms. Jodie's daycare. We watched Open Season 3 and then checked out all the animals at the Salisbury Zoo. It was a very hot day so everyone cooled off in the mist at the playground before we ate a picnic lunch.
64: August 2011 Emma's 4th Birthday You chose Ariel for your cake this year. It didn't turn out quite how I planned with Ariel's skin being a funny shade of orange, but you loved it anyway! | Ariel with her orange skin. | Your Swedish Fish treat bags. | You and sissy posing.
65: When it came time to sing Happy Birthday, mommy started singing without even lighting your candles. You gave me such a "duh" look, like you couldn't believe I forgot. We all got a laugh.
66: First Day of Preschool Your first day of preschool was on August 30. You were all prepared with your ladybug back pack, lunch box and the ladybug blanket and pillow that mommom made you for your birthday. You were very excited but a little nervous too. Ms. Kathy was your teacher and she happily greeted you in your class. Mommy and daddy dropped you off and left for work. No Tears!
69: September 2011 You visited the dentist for the first time this month. You were such a good patient. You sat very still and did everything that you were told do. It was a Crest Checkup!
70: October 2011 For Halloween you dressed up as Rapunzel and sissy dressed up as a cowgirl. You went to the Layfield's Halloween Party where they had a costume parade, hayrides, inflatables, and plenty of food.
71: Trick or Treating through Cinderberry with Peyton, Gavin and Jesse. | Jesse as a scary masked man, Gavin as Woody, Emma as Rapunzel and Peyton as a Cowgirl.
72: December 2011 Christmas Program at Lighthouse Christian School
73: Your class, along with Ms. Kathy, put on a wonderful Christmas Program. You sang many songs and Ms. Kathy performed a skit with some of the older students. You were so cute up on stage waving to us every so often.
74: December 2011 Christmas Cookie Decorating
75: We went to mommom's and decorated sugar, chocolate and molasses cookies. You loved painting the cookies.
77: Jingles came to visit us the Sunday after Thanksgiving. He really got into a lot of mischief. He even got injured a couple of times; once when you accidentally knocked him over and once when he fell off the hot light into the sink. Nothing a bandage and ice pack didn't fix. See you next year Jingles! | December 2011
78: Christmas 2011 We went to mommom and poppop's for Christmas Eve dinner with the entire family. You opened your gifts from mommom and poppop after everyone left. You got homemade aprons and umbrellas, as well as some clothes and your own ironing board and iron.. We went home and sprinkled your reindeer food on the lawn that Jingles made for you, and put out some cookies for Santa and Jingles. The next morning you opened your gifts from Santa. You got a Barbie car, a Leap Pad, some games and books.
79: Cookies for Santa and Jingles. | A pre-Christmas picture with Gavin. | Showing off your aprons that mommom made. | It's raining; It's pouring!
80: New Year's Eve 2011 You and your sister spent New Years having dinner at the Brick Hotel with Aunt Joe, Gavin, and Renee. After dinner you took a trip to Walmart and then spent the night at Aunt Joe's house.
81: I was trying to get some good pictures of you and your sister, but someone kept making silly faces!
